Quick Popcorn Balls

I don’t think I have eaten a popcorn ball since elementary school, thirty plus years ago. I remember around Halloween during Trick or Treat, or Beggars’ Night (or whatever they call it where you are from) people would hand out homemade treats as often as store bought candy. You could expect to find popcorn balls, caramel covered apples, all types of brownies and cookies and even money in the form of small change. There was the German lady who every year would hand out unwrapped sugar coated lemon drops. She would speak to us very gently in her native language while dropping a handful of lemon candies into each of our sacks from a big wooden bowl tucked under her arm. I wonder what she was saying to us.
